My friend Christie noticed some wild grapes growing next to our church parking lot and encouraged me to photograph them by showing me some very beautiful pictures she took. Her are three shots of church grapes and one of a friendly maple leaf.

When Pat and I do our photo safaris, we often find off road sites we try to capture. But, we also find photo worthy images in the road right-of-way. This right-of-way is typically 33 feet measured from the road center on either side of the road. Today’s images were all taken yesterday in road right-of-ways.

Stone Mountain, GA is about 15 miles east of Atlanta. It is considered by many as the largest exposed granite dome in the world; 1686′ above sea level, 825″ above ground level, 5 miles around at its base, and some 9 miles down below ground. The massive rock mountain does contain some stone that is not granite.
The mountain’s north face contains the largest bas relief sculpture in the world. The carving measures 90 feet tall, 190 feet wide and 11 feet deep. It spans 3 acres and is larger than Mount Rushmore. The profiles on Mt. Rushmore are 60′ tall. The Crazy Horse Memorial will become the largest sculpture (564′ by 640′) when completed.
Our visit to the mountain was part of our vacation visit with our youngest son and his family.
